Content and structure of the minor


The goal of Aalto’s Multi-Disciplinary Energy Studies minor is to educate multi-skilled students with both subject-specific know-how and integrative understanding across a range of energy issues.


The Multi-Disciplinary Energy Studies (MES) is a collaborative teaching effort between several disciplines of Aalto University, as follows: system analysis (Prof. Ahti Salo, Prof. Afzal Siddiqui), media (Prof. Ramia Maze), energy sciences (Prof. Peter Lund), information technology (Prof. Antti Ylä-Jääski, Prof. Keijo Heljanko), business (Profs. Karlos Artto, Jan Holmström), economics (Prof. Matti Liski).


The Multi-Disciplinary Energy covers key perspectives on energy issues: science and technology, economics and business, social sciences and human behaviour. All students familiarize themselves with each of these three core domains.


 If you want to replace a Level 2 course with your own choice, please contact Prof. Peter Lund.
